Y’know, Billie brings some good points. Danny brings a kinda-botched punchline.
Hate leads to suffering, Danny. Get it right.
suffering leads to…something
Wouldn’t that be anger, not hate?
Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering.
Alternately: Fear leads to anger, anger leads to passion, passion leads to jealousy, jealousy leads to nurturing, nurturing leads to weakness, weakness leads to humility, humility leads to injustice, injustice leads to heroism, heroism leads to pride, pride leads to patriotism, patriotism leads to totalitarianism, totalitarianism leads to power, power leads to suffering.
I don’t know what hate leads to in that case. Madness, I guess.
Welcome to Dangobah.
If you put Mary in her place, she’ll only come back stronger than you can imagine…or somthing
She’ll mutate into a monster…oh wait, she’s one already(in both universes).
I still say she’s worse in Dumbiverse. Mary’s nasty here, but I always get the impression her actions are legitimately coming from some misguided sense of moral righteousness. Over in DoA, it seems increasingly obvious that this is a thin rationalization for being a power-hungry sadist.
Mary’s pretty much retained her traits in both universes. In the Walkyverse everyone shared her religion and her views, at least at first so she seems less nasty since she doesn’t have that to take issue with. She still tries to destroy what she finds objectionable it’s just she got caught being a massive hypocrite and was left on her own. That hasn’t happened in DOA yet, she hasn’t pushed too far and had it snap back and hot her in the face yet.
I’m not just talking about her actions, but where they seem to be coming from. This Mary just doesn’t seem to have the same outright sadism guiding her that the other Mary does, although I admit I can’t remember everything she did over here.
Yeah, I can’t see DoA Mary reaching out to Billie and realizing she was in the wrong like this. DoA Mary seems more like the type to try and dispose of the evidence.
Is that superfluous “own” in panel 2 bugging anyone else?
It’s an intensifier, and it’s pretty common and old.
Here’s the NGram, and a couple modern phrases to scale. https://books.google.com/ngrams/graph?content=my+own%2Ccomputer%2Cpersonal+computer&year_start=1700
I want to call it an issue of subject-verb agreement, but I’m not sure that’s the right term: *she* can do something at my expense, and *she* can do something at *her own* expense, and *I* can do something at *my own* expense, but *she* cannot do something at *my own* expense.
I mean, I justify it contextually because it’s an in-character mistake for Billie to make. But as a self-described Grammar Vogon, it bugs me.
Grammar Vogon, that’s new… Whatever, allies are always welcome.
And I’m finally caught up! BWAHAHAHA! NOW I SHALL RULE THE WORLD!
Or at least, actually have people read and respond to my comments.
Welcome to the Illuminati!
gotta agree with Billie. no one is obliged to forgive someone asking for forgiveness, especially if you think they’ll do the same thing to you all over again.
In my experience, “sorry” is just an excuse for people to keep being assholes

I'm so excited for a webcomic that's not about being drunk and depressed!
